    Orders from Nathan Hawke
    Runners across the lands deliver the following message to the people of Sosaria.

    "My spies have reported back that the invasion by stealth continues and that Dark Elf cells have appeared and been dealt with in a couple of locations. However, there remains two cells still to be removed from our soil. Please expedite this situation quickly and with extreme precision."

    Hasty sketches are added as below:


    Dark Elf Cell One


    Dark Elf Cell Two

    now trying to catch up and confused. I found the book in the Yew orc fort and it read differnt to one quoted by Mapper. When I read the book it read

    Which I roughly translated from Drow as:

    Commanded from High Priestess of lloth

    L’common ph’inbavin alert
    Vel’ accomplishments about l’mine
    Zaha to be raised

    Mappers quote I roughly translated to read:


    Commanded from High Priestess of lloth

    We need more
    slaves! Mine of black
    rock is fall yiss.

    Has the books changed and where is the cave box?

    Yes sorry Flame, the one I quoted in my post was a book in the Blackrock Mine. I copied the wrong one from my journal, The one you have posted is the one I have from Yew.

    Can't translate a couple of the words quoted, but there are a couple of very similar words from Drow that might make more sense - ph' usually means 'are', and rather than 'bavin' I'd suggest it should read ph'inbauin which would mean 'are getting', and if 'zaha' is meant to be 'zhah', which translates to 'is' (I'm fairly sure the gargoyle queen being named Zhah is coincidence!), the message would read :


    The humans are getting alert. Security about the mine is to be raised.

    One more "a dark entrance to an underground space" with Ethethrae nearby...

    she respond to mine - Nau Uss Xal Sultha L'Fil'ashti Xuileb I'bgualyiz K'Lararlxan'ss
    blackrock - same cryptic text

    one translation is
    No One May Enter L'Fil'ashti Without I'bgualyiz K'Lararlxan'ss

    another translation is
    No One May Enter THE Mines Without I'bgualyiz K'Lararlxan'ss

    These must have all appeared today as the one at the "dig" place wasn't there yesterday; despite one being right next to my keep, Traveller found the other two :D

    Hmm... 'bgualyizles would mean correction, so in this case I'd assume it is meant to convey 'correct', and "k'lararl" would mean pass, and "xan'ss", funnily enough, means 'word' ;)

    Not much use, but still, another word to include in the translation - Yathtaller, very similar to Yathtallar which means 'High Priestess'.

    Don't know of any translation for Valas, but it's probably just the name of the writer :)

    On the floor near her is a box with a small piece of blackrock and a book inside.

    Commanded from Yathtaller

    You dare ask me about Blackrock?

    Vesper found a box through the Vesper graveyard this evening, It said:

    Translated it seems to say 'Word is the humans are looking for the cave. What accomplish you command? '

    -------------------------------------------------------

    Found a second which said:

    Meaning: 'Send us new password please! Ossta old passwords dont effort anymore!'

    Escaflowne sent me a book he received personally from a drow:

    I make it out to say 'All passwords from now on will be sent in code as humans are intercepting them. Passwords will be changed and resent incase they have been comprimised'

    The drow appear to be using dragons to guard the mines - another report from Hildy of investigations yesterday.
